As you can see from the slideshow above, Forcella has come a long way since The Local last glimpsed inside about a month ago – owner Giulio Adriani told us today that he’s ready to open for lunch and dinner at 334 Bowery on Thursday. He describes the décor here as “more fancy” and “more Manhattan-oriented” compared to the rustic décor of the Brooklyn original, but he assures us the menu will remain the same, and will include “authentic Neapolitan pizza” made from homemade mozzarella as well a “Montanara” pie inspired by his grandmother – it’s flash-fried and then finished in a wood-fired Acunto oven that was imported from Napoli.

Have a look at the menus here. Forcella will be open from noon till 11 p.m. from Sunday through Thursday, and noon till midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, with delivery ranging from Broadway to Avenue A and from 10th Street to a bit south of Houston Street. Until the wine and beer license comes in, it’s soda only.
